3-day streak
We’ve barely gotten started and I feel like I’m learning so much. Really excited for the CTF to start!

might mess around and start a bank or smthn, idk. seriously tho, this is cool

Bruhhhh I printed this part wrong. Now I have to print it all over again sadparrot emoji

Having a great time on this AMA with Alex Stamos!

Finally ready to start printing a case for my SOM project!
image.png
Also, I added a better README.md to one of my projects!
image.png
Time to get this streak back! Right now, I’m doing a simple test print to make sure my bed is level.

I really want to work on my SOM project more but this course takes up way too much of my time. Here's a picture of another presentation lol

Gonna try this out today. I feel like I’m gonna regret it lmao

This benchy looked a lot better before I tried to remove it from the bed lol. Does anyone have any tips for removing prints from the bed once they're done?

TIL soldering is much harder than it looks online...

Finished a project for Hack the Cloud with @iniesta2719 and started figuring out how to set up an ad hoc network using a pi zero for my SOM project. I don't really have a picture, so enjoy this blanket lol

Made some more progress on this hackathon project

oops I lost my streak! but here’s what I would have posted 24 minutes ago if I wasn’t stressing to complete a quiz that was also due 24 mins ago!
Not much interesting today, but I did figure out a new idea to get the pi zero working as a programming tool for iPads. The original plan was to simply set the Pi Zero up as an Ethernet Gadget so that you could easily just plug in one cable with power and data to an iPad, and SSH into it using something like Termius. Butttttt, there were 2 problems with this: first off, iPads cannot supply enough power to the Pi over Lightning to allow it to fully boot, and secondly, even once powered by an external power source, I couldn't SSH into it, which was pretty disappointing. But after a nice long shower, I came up with a new idea: Instead of using USB for SSH, the pi will create a secured wi-fi access point where you can SSH into it, or log the Pi onto some other wireless network using SSH or some sort of Web UI. I have a small OLED display that will be perfect for this. Then, to handle the power problem, I'll have a separate Li-Po battery that will power the Pi when it detects that it's been plugged into a USB host. Ideally, it'd be able to charge a little bit of of the iPad but I'm not too sure how viable this is. I'll probably also have to have a separate charging port, which I was trying to avoid in my original design, but it is what it is. I also want to see if I can set up a joystick to navigate through menus.

Having a great time!

Just partitioned a USB drive to test out Big Sur and Pop!_OS later
image.png
Finally finished this presentation that I’ve been putting off all day
image.png
Did a test and found out that iPads can't send enough power over Lightning to allow the Pi Zero to fully boot 😞 now I have to figure out how to power it using some sort of battery
I got this OLED display working!

No, you don't get an unboxing, but you do have this clip of me powering up the pi zero for the the first time!
The OS is up!

Look what came in the mail today!

Currently doing stuff for a dual credit course, but I don’t want to lose my streak, so enjoy this empty notepad window

I finished my URL shortener! It’s probably not the best, but it does what I need it to. The code is at github.com/jasonappah/router. Next, I’m probably going to rebuild my website and make it cooler.
Beginning work on a Airtable-powered personal URL shortener! There’s already apps out there that do this way better than I can, but it’s been pretty interesting working on this so far
image.png
I made a basic design of the case that’ll hold all of my components! Now I just need to make sure everything fits…
I tested my Lightning to USB adapter by connecting it to a memory card reader, and…. I haven’t even gotten all of my parts yet but I may have already hit a roadblock with my project. Basically, Lightning may not be able to provide enough power to the Pi Zero I’m planning using. I said may, because Apple doesn’t publish anything on the Lightning spec, unless you are in the made for MFi program, but to join, you have to represent a company or organization, and you have to sign an NDA, which I definitely cannot do. This would probably not be a problem with a USB-C iPad, so hopefully my Dad will let me test on his when it comes. But for now, I guess now we wait to see if the iPad can power the Pi Zero! I’m planning to have a separate LiPo battery as a backup in case the iPad can’t power the Pi.

Flashing my SD cards with Raspbian!

Switched my default shell to zsh today! I installed oh my zsh, powerlevel10k and a syntax highlighting plugin, what else would you recommend I do? Also thanks @matthewgleich for the help with moving my PATH over from bash
image.png
First parts for my project came! Now I can start work on a more detailed CAD design. I wasn't too sure on the dimensions of the adapter so I didn't want to do all the design and end up wasting my time

Whoops, I completely forgot to post yesterday. Didn’t code yesterday, but I’m back in Ableton after a bit of creative block

I finally got around to adding some custom CSS to my scrapbook, and I added 2 features to the customizer you can export your CSS straight into a gist to make it easier to add to your scrapbook, and the CSS auto-saves in your browser so you don’t have to worry if your browser crashes. emoji
Finalized my Bill of Materials for Summer of Making!

I'm super excited! Let's do this! ultrafastparrot emoji ultrafastparrot emoji ultrafastparrot emoji ultrafastparrot emoji

Almost got this working, but I like sleeping so I’m gonna go do that :)
Almost done with a feature that lets you export your CSS to a gist!

We’ll see if it works in a couple of minutes!

Termux is really cool

Wow I’m so excited! /s

I got my customizer almost fully working! The CSS stuff is still being kinda quirky but in theory it should work once I put it on a *.hackclub.com domain (CORS issues still lol, I think at this point I probably need to rethink the way I’m applying the CSS). I also made it look a little nicer so the UI will probably stay the same, but if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them!
I know it looks incredibly ugly (I’ll fix that soon lol), but my CSS editor for scrapbooks is partially working after working through some CORS issues!
I set up a custom domain for my scrapbook! scrapbook.jasonaa.me. Next I want to create a CSS customizer so it’s super easy to create CSS for your scrapbook.

I made a Python program with Selenium that bulk uploads videos to a CMS that a nonprofit I’m working with uses. I’m pretty proud of myself since this is the first project I’ve started and seen all the way through. If you want to check it out, the code is here: github.com/jasonappah/subsplashuploader
